Data are not shown

most older drives can't read multi session... you need to have a drive installed to be able to read multi session burn. there is no software tweak that can fix this... you need to replace the drive. otherwise burn the data as single session.

DVD R not working properly

So it won't play movies most of the time? Time to replace the drive more than likely. When a laser gets weak, sometimes it wont read the DVD's, but will read regular cd's without problems. Eventually it won't read anything. The laser requires more power to read a dvd than a regular cd. The laser itself it adjustable, doesn't always work, but it's a sure sign that its on its way out. They are cheap to replace these days. :)

Problems with my CD-RW\DVD-R

Maybe it's time to replace but try this last thing before opening the trash can lid:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers.
